3. "What happened to our country? "
Edited on Sat Nov-02-13 02:30 PM by No Elephants
Maybe, that is what the 1% asked themselves after Lincoln, FDR and LBJ. And ever since, they've been "correcting course."

I see those three as the aberrations, not the norm. If you mentally remove them, it's been a fairly consistent theme since the East India Company.

Not sure exactly where JFK fits in.

He did cut taxes for the rich, but they had been increased to pay for WWII and his cut was not huge.

Anyway, he met the same fate as Lincoln--not to mention his hungry kids in Appalachia visiting brother.

Yeah, yeah, I know. Single bullet, crazy Sirhan Sirhan, everyone acted alone, yadda yadda.
